The Reno-Tahoe International Airport is getting a $10 million infrastructure grant for a runaway pavement improvement project. 

U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao made the announcement on Wednesday. 

The Federal Aviation Administration plans to award $779 million in supplemental funding for infrastructure grants to 127 airports in all 50 states and Puerto Rico.  

The selected airports will receive funding for construction or equipment to increase the airports’ safety, capacity, and security. 

“This supplemental funding allows us to invest in important infrastructure needs at the nation’s airports, especially those serving smaller and rural communities,” said Secretary Chao.

Hawthorne Industrial is also getting a grant, $2,750,000, for taxiway improvements. 

This second and final increment of supplemental funding was funded through the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2018. The Act provided an additional $1 billion in funding above the $3.31 billion awarded in the regular Airport Improvement Program funding during fiscal year 2018.
